About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    As an artist, I like to bring attention to the experience of the divine feminine in everyday life, often through unusual or shocking images. My art is constructed to solicit a visceral reaction upon viewing or interaction with the piece. My 2d work is done primarily in acrylics and my 3D work is done in fabric.
